Sharing best practice

Membership of the RSS gives you the opportunity to get involved, keep up-to-date and share best practice with like-minded professionals across the world.

Sections & Local Groups

All our members are invited to join any of our local groups and special interest sections, offering local, national and sector specific networking opportunities.

Events & Meetings

We organise around 100 meetings a year, giving our members plenty of opportunities to learn, share best practice and meet other members of the statistics community from different industries and around the UK. Meetings are either free or offered at a discount to members.

For our members who can’t attend all of our meetings, we record a number of them which are then available on our website as free podcasts or videos.

Annual Conference

Fellows receive a discount to attend the RSS Annual International Conference which brings together almost 500 participants to listen to a range of respected statisticians present their latest research and case studies and debate issues of interest.


Every year, members who have made outstanding contributions to statistics are recognised by their peers through our prestigious awards. Members are encouraged to nominate other fellows.


Our CStat members are invited to mentor members applying for the professional accreditation of Graduate Statistician.

Statisticians for Society

We encourage our members to participate in our Statisticians for Society programme. Working in partnership with Datakind UK and Statistics Without Borders, our members can offer their time pro bono to good causes.
